That’s right, Star Wars Classic Greek nudes.
Parisian performance artist Travis Durden turns his attention to George Lucas’ iconic film franchise for his new exhibition titled “Contre Attaque” (roughly translating to “counter attack” or “return of the attack” in French). Travis Durden took this idea to a whole new artistic level, using digital technology to sculpt iconic Star Wars figures out of faux-marble.
The heads of each of the sculptures are pulled directly from the movie franchise while the bodies are sourced from statues found within Paris’s Louvre.
On display at the GALERIE SAKURA in Paris, the exhibition presents a new take on several recognizable Star Wars characters, flipping them into works of Greek-inspired art. Durden superimposed Star Wars characters’ faces over photographs of artwork from the Louvre for his contribution to a showcase that includes over 35 international artists.
“Contre Attaque” runs until January 15 with free public admission.
